The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. STEM Solar Explorations

    SBC: Diversified Painting & CO            Topic: N/A

  2. Electrostatically Flocked Graphite Fiber Interface for Thermally Conductive Structural 2D Laminate Graphite Fiber Reinforced Composites

    SBC: EY TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: AF10BT01

    ABSTRACT: The objective of the EY Technologies proposal is to develop a graphite fiber interface on the surface of a 2D graphite unidirectional tape to enhance the thermally conductive and structural properties on all axis of a composite, with emphasis in enhancing the Z-axis. Currently, industry has not been able to make 2D laminate composite from unidirectional materials that simultaneously ...

  3. Theoretical Models of Quantum Conductance on Graphical Processing Units

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT21

    ABSTRACT: Due to the costs associated with their fabrication, theoretical prediction of conductance in molecular and nano-electronic systems is a cost-effective tool in the design of new devices. Unfortunately, the techniques currently used to treating conductance are computationally expensive, and modeling real systems accurately has been a challenge. We propose to tackle this problem by develop ...

  4. Highly Directional Infrared Emission and Transmission

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF10BT30

    ABSTRACT: In this STTR program, Agiltron and Iowa State University (ISU) jointly propose to develop simple material and structural solutions that enable directionally dependent emission in the infrared regime. The highly directional infrared emission has extremely narrow emission patterns and a large difference between high and low emission states. In the Phase I program, the structure will be fa ...

  6. Novel Gas-Diffusion Electrodes for Carbon Dioxide Electroreduction

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT07

    ABSTRACT: As security of fossil fuel sources is diminishing, the generation of synthetic fuels may constitute a significant strategic capability for the USAF. GES and the INL propose novel catalysts and electrochemical cell components for the electroreduction of carbon dioxide to syngas. Catalyst composition will be formulated to optimize both product selectivity and cell efficiency. A prelimina ...

  7. MOF based Catalyst for Electrochemical Reduction of Carbon Dioxide

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF11BT07

    ABSTRACT: The efficient production of fuels from carbon dioxide waste would be revolutionary. Catalysts are needed to provide the electrochemical conversion of carbon dioxide to liquid fuels. PSI proposes to covalently bind an efficient, high rate rhenium based homogeneous catalyst into a nanoporous cathode for the electrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide to carbon monoxide. Because the 2 ...

  8. Ultra-High Density Ion Propulsion From Ionic Liquids

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: AF11BT10

    ABSTRACT: Busek Co. Inc. and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) propose to explore the physical limits of ionic liquid propulsion via development of new theory to explain effects of close packing density and to predict performance limits. The research is motivated by observations and tests demonstrating that emission from 2-dimensional porous surfaces yields order of magnitude greater e ...

  9. IP Satellite Network Architecture for Effective TCP Performance

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: AF11BT12

    ABSTRACT: Satellite networks provide high bandwidth global communications without relying on existing infrastructure. Current satellite system use is impeded by round trip delays and limited ground access points. Future IP based LEO/MEO satellite networks offer smaller delays and flexible, high capability communications. Propagation delays, highly dynamic links, higher error rates, dynamic sat ...

  10. Multi-function, Conformal, Textile Antenna for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF11BT13

    ABSTRACT: Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI), in collaboration with the Textile Engineering, Chemistry, and Science Department at the North Carolina State University, proposes to develop a novel wideband UHF communication antenna for aerial vehicles. The antenna is designed to achieve optimal conformal surface utilization, wideband, and good radiation efficiency, while allowing structural reinforcemen ...
